Tokyo sure is getting a taste for 'bean to bar' chocolate, with accomplished purveyors like Minimal and Cacao Store beginning business in the city with great fanfare over the past year. San Francisco import Dandelion is the next shop to try its luck on these shores: opened in newly trendy Kuramae in February 2016, this is the Mission-based choco champion's first overseas location, and houses both a café and a 'chocolate factory'. The latter is open for tours, while you can also try making your own goodies at one of their regular workshops. Along with single-origin chocolate bars, the café offers a menu of thick-enough-to-stand-a-spoon-in drinking chocolates and mochas, plus a range of decadent desserts.
